April 16, 2010. Raleigh, North Carolina.. Tony Avent is the founder of the Juniper Level Botanical Garden and the owner of Plant Delights Nursery. He is a plant explorer, traveling around the world looking for new types of plants, and is considered one of the forerunners in the field of breeding new varieties of plants for the consumer market.. The rain pond is where all the runoff water from the nursery in funneled, filtered and then recycled back onto the plants. The waterfall serves as a power source for pushing the water back into the ecosystem.
